Hi guys,

Back in 2011 we have released the Constellation for XBMC. Time has passed and the remote, although updated, needed some refreshing.

After months of work we're pleased to present you our 2nd remote control app for Kodi media center: The Remote for Kodi. Go on and give it a try Smile

The Remote for Kodi is the ultimate way to control your favorite media center
The app is the most customizable, efficient and the best-looking solution for the demanding
* automatically discover nearby hosts and connect to them with ease
* layout and customize the homepage using tiles of wanted size
* create and manage filters for media - build your own queries and shortcuts for quick access
* browse you media with lightning speed
* search your media using Spotlight search
* play YouTube movies using the built-in view or by URL from clipboard
* effectively browse, search & filter your collection
* enjoy one of the many built-in remote control commands or create your own
* manage smart playlists

Looks like a nice remote. Two things I noticed:

- EPG view does not take over the channel numbers which are in Kodi/TVHeadend. Channels are mixed up and given numbers starting somewhere in 600's
- No Radio tag supported in the PVR part. Could you please add this? Maybe a separate category for Radio, apart from Live TV?

@Brice yes we do, however - as with the Constellation - we have to carefully plan the layout to use whole screen and not to be bloated with content
@McYoshi thanks for the feedback, definitely will be fixed.

* Long-press gestures for super-quick actions (play media directly from the Grid View)
* Bug fixes

Thanks for the work: this is by far the best Kodi remote to date.

It seems that one (for me important) feature is non-functional. The volume increment / decrement buttons and volume rockers of the iPad do not seem to work. In Constellation, this enables me to change the volume of the receiver through CEC. Is this a bug?

Also:

Could you elaborate more on this? Can I add calls to custom endpoints?

Hello,
I have constellation (pro user). I plan to buy this new application . I have two questions :
1.What are the buttons that can be added to the remote control ?
2. At the bottom of the main screen, Can we have previous and next track instead of fast forward and rewind ?
Thank you!

Yes, you can send POST/GET request to any endpoints. THE Remote supports json/x-www-form/text-plain body.

Can you please add iPhone support to The Remote?

Also currently I can't get the spotlight search function to work anymore on iOS 10

Hi @stryjek4 I finally decided to make the in-app purchase for your app because I especially love the amount of features crammed into this app, I also very much like the ios 9 spotlight search and I wish more apps had the functionality.

Please make The Remote for Kodi a universal binary app and add iPhone support so that I can use spotlight search to find movies using my iPhone as well. This would be amazing.

I hope you can continue to keep the app updated for iOS 10 which I am currently using and add more features. Do you have a testflight beta currently that I can try out new features and provide feedback before they come out?

Thanks

Shawn
